Medical Student Mentorship "Consider Psychiatry"

In recent years, the number of medical students choosing to specialize in psychiatry has declined. OPPF has initiated efforts to encourage medical students to consider a residency in psychiatry. OPPF's goal is to provide quality enriched activities for medical students, allowing them to gain greater exposure to psychiatry and offering them an opportunity to meet and network with practicing psychiatrists

You can help achieve this goal by paying the meeting registration fee for a medical student to attend OPPA’s Annual Psychiatric Update. Your support can be accomplished in one of two ways: 1) If you have a particular student you wish to sponsor, simply complete the registration form, making sure to include the student information, and fax to (614) 481-7559; or 2) If you do not have a particular student in mind, we will pair you up with a medical student who has indicated an interest in attending if there is a sponsorship available - you may register online or fax the registration form to our office. 

This year's medical student sponsorship program covers only basic costs for program materials, breakfast, and lunch. If you would like to learn how you can turn your support of a medical student into a tax-deductible contribution please call our office at (614) 763-0040! Click here for other giving options.
